Spicy Mexican Bean Burritos...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: , ,
Burritos one of the famous snack of mexican cuisine is mostly a tortilla filled with beans, rice and meat.But i have made this burittos little spicy, of less calories yet they are very very tasty..They have got a spicy hot sauce which give them a nice spicy taste.This hot sauce is realy very tasty n nice you can use it as sauce for other snacks also.I have tried it make it a bit low calorie by not using cheese and butter and the sour cream used i have made using only yogurt instead of cream so a little of less calories there:-).I have also fried this burritos till crisp.


For Hot Sauce:
  • 10 long dry red chillis
  • 1 tomato very finely chopped
  • 1 table spoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 table spoon tomato ketchup
  • salt
  • oil
For Bean Stuffing:
  • 1 cup red kidney beans
  • 2 green chillis
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 table spoon chopped garlic
  • 1 table spoon above hot sauce
  • oil
  • salt
For Sour Cream:
  • 1 cup thick yogurt(low fat)
  • 1 tea spoon tabasco sauce
  • salt
For Outer Tortilla:
  • 1 cup wheat flour(or maize flour)
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tea spoon oil
  • salt


Soak the red kidney beans is water for 7-8 hours.Then pressure cook them using green chillis and salt.Keep aside. Kned the dough using all the ingredients.Keep it aside for 1 hour.

For hot sauce first soak the dry long red chillis for 2 hours in water and then boil them for 5 mins and grind to a fine paste.Heat a pan with little oil and add chopped tomato.Saute it for 2 mins till they becomes soft.Then add tomato ketchup and saute for 20 seconds.Add chopped garlic and again saute for 1 min.Add salt and the red chilli paste and cook for 2 mins and remove from flame and keep aside.

For the beans stuffing heat pan with little oil and saute onions till light brown.Add garlic and saute for 1 min.Add the cooked rajma, hot sauce and salt and mix well.Cook for 2 mins and remove.

For sour cream put the yogurt in a muslin cloth and tie and knot and hang it for 2-3 hours so that all the water in it sips down.Then add salt and tobasco sauce and mix it.Sour cream is ready.

For the outer tortilla.Make small balls of the dough and roll them into rotis.Heat a tawa and roast them till they get cooked.Do not over roast them they should remain soft.Cool them.

Finally to make the burritos take a fried roti.Add the bean stuffing in the center in a line.Add 2 tea spoonof hot sauce above it and little sour cream.Now to roll it, fold it 1 inch on both sides in which stuffing is added so that it does not fall when rolled.Then wrap it tightly like a normal wrap.

Eat it like this or heat a griddle and add little oil.Fry it on all sides till brown and crisp.

NOTE:I have used dry long red chillis for hot sauce which are less pungent and give a nice taste and red colour.They are local chillis here and the variety is called as "begdi".They are different and more spicy then the kashmiri chillis.If you do not get them use regular red chillis but according to your taste.

Preparation Time: 40 mins
